Recommended Posts

Just wanted to check if raw cabbage leaves can be fed to chooks?

I grew lots of cabbage on the allotment this year so that we had plenty to share with the girlies. They adore cabbage! :D

Mine ignore cabbage - raw or cooked. They love all forms of lettuce and spinach, however.

Mine go nuts for the outer leaves on cabbages - especially if I'm holding it for them!

Mine certainly love it...

 

Though I didnt really get a choice...2 days in they destroyed my vegetable patch :lol: that was before I thought to make a fence :lol:

Great, that solves the problem with what to do with all the slug munched cabbages I have in my garden - put them through my feathered composters :D !

Every week I dangle a cabbage on a long piece of string in their coop - they absolutely love the sport of trying to peck at it!

 

Cabbage is high in Calcium too so it's good for them!

I feed my chickens a lot of cabbage as they have eaten all my grass and the rain has turned it into a mud bath. I noticed this morning that my partners scrambled egg was green. Has this happened to anyone else ?

Best to keep it away from the pellets. They only will go mouldy quicker. 
You could put it on the ground, but you could also hang it up, using a string or a little wire feeder.
